Happy Thanksgiving all.
MN, I had cervical cancer when I was 28 and vulvar cancer when I was 50. There is a lot of good technology with all these cancers these days and I just know you will be fine. BELIEVE!

Just a quick check in to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. I'm taking a break from SP, computer and everything else normal in life as I deal with my diagnosis last Wednesday of endometrial cancer. It threw me for a loop! I've had surgery and now am home recovering as I await the lab results, staging, etc. I am ready to call on my full German stubborness to fight this! Count your blessings every day! Will check in periodically as I feel up to it.

Morning Guys
Jeri excellent news! Good to hear. I give our team points but have no idea what it means, I'll investigate, Why do I follow so blindly LOL
Joy glad she enjoyed the album
Lynette I love my saucy Santas LOL
Patti enjoy your day off. It's Black Friday here!
Cat sorry your game did not go so well, sound like the team has a lot of trust in you if they confide in you. That's a lovely quality to have.


Marilyn and everyone enjoy Thanksgiving today.

emoticon Hi Everybody!
Jeri, So sorry to hear about the troubles with your dad. Being there for your dad is a wonderful
gift. There isn't anything you can do to change his wife, so the things you can do for him will be appreciated. Even if he gets to the point that he doesn't acknowledge your help, later on you will be glad that you did what you could to make life better for him.

Hard to believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving already. We are staying in for dinner for 2 and football on the new TV we bought to replace the old one that died again. A nice quiet holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US! emoticon emoticon emoticon

As a team leader I, too, am clueless what the team points do and for whom, but I do give them daily.
Bowled today and didn't do well. Oh well. I am league president and always have to deal with others and their issues so my game suffers (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!).
Have a grand evening.
Jeri, glad to hear the good news of your dad.
Joy, have fun and get some rest.

I'm sure your gd was thrilled with the gift of love you did for her, Joy!
Jeri, so sad to read about your dad's situation. All you can do is be there for him in whatever ways you can.
I also do the team points daily. I think it is just a competition thing but perhaps the team leaders know more about it?
Busy but not eating well and not getting in enough steps. Cold weather is here. Snow on the way again today.
Tomorrow is American Thanksgiving but simply Thursday here --tho the Black Friday thing is getting to be a big deal.
Love the eye candy pic of the hunky guy!

Good Morning All, DD and kids arrived safely last night about 12:30, We didn't get to bed until after 3. Up early anyway, I'm still tired. DGD LOVED her album! :)

Jeri, I click on the team points too but don't have a clue what they do. I'm glad your dad is doing better. I'm also glad you got some rest! Busy week ahead yet. Have fun everyone!

Do you all give our team points? (the points on the home page). Every day I give our team bonus points, and it says we are #4 in maintaining. But I don't know what the points do.

Good morning. I'm feeling much better about my dad today. Last night at the nursing home they had a big Thanksgiving dinner for family. I had no idea that was going on, so I took him some Chinese food. He was really glad to get the Chinese food!! He ate!! He hasn't eaten more than a few bites at a time in several weeks, so I was glad to see him eat all his food last night. Then I got him a piece of pie from the dinner they were serving. It was so good to see him enjoy his food. I think a big difference came when they actually took him to lunch in the dining room yesterday. I'd asked the therapist if they could do that, and yesterday was the first day of lunch with other people. They said he ate better. Hopefully yesterday is the start of a turnaround. His insurance only fully covers the first 100 days. If she doesn't want him home after that, I will bring him to our house. We'll have to make some kind of crazy space arrangements, but it will work somehow.

I was tired this morning. Was supposed to get up and swim, but I slept in instead. Tomorrow I will bake pies, and my family will all come to eat on Friday. My sister is coming up from South Carolina. I hope she isn't stopped by snow.

Jeri I'm inclined to agree with Joy about the legality of what she's up to. Do you know when the document was signed, was it after dementia was diagnosed. If so you could invoke the mentally capable clause. But she's been with him so long I would not hold out much hope with this gold digging wife.
At least you and his friends can visit knowing he's safe and cared for where he is, though it's not ideal. I'd have a word with his carers/doctor too about the "stabbing incident". If her mental stability is called into question a "power of attorney" could be elected to keep his affairs safe, a family member for example.She'd be out of the loop then.
Cat I hope all went well with your appt.

Apparently I failed to check in yesterday.
Jeri, I would contact an attorney for advice. Sounds to me like your dad may need help getting his own affairs in order and away from his (sounds like) incompetent wife. If she is having drug problems is she capable of caring for his money and his care?
The cost for the advice would be minimal and you may find that there is something that can be done to minimize the destruction.
Remember to take time for you and your household and breathe.

Got my mammogram this morning while SO went and got our Costco turkey. Then we got the green beans and some whipping cream at another store before heading home to lunch.
I never did get in a walk as it kept raining off and on all day.
So, I made three pies. Lemon (I'll whip cream to put on slices), pecan, and pumpkin. They are all cooling.

You're right, Joy. Their home was not a welcoming place. The more I find out, the more stressed it makes me. I'm taking him some Chinese food tonight. I'll bring him to our house for Thanksgiving. She is going to eat with her sons, and just leave him right there where he is. So we'll feed him.

JERI, on the plus side, his friends and family will be more likely to and more comfortable visiting him there than at his home. Most likely no longer a welcoming place. My mother had Alzeheimer's but no physical limitations for years. We would check her out and bring her to family gatherings and celebrations and sometimes just go for a ride, lunch or dessert. One day at a time.

His friends will continue to see him. She is not even going to visit this week. She's already told me she won't be visiting this week. I wish he could have had in-home care, where he would be comfortable and in familiar surroundings. That's where his hard-earned money should be spent. Not for her sons' for-profit business. They don't care what happens to him. She told me the other day that one time some meds she was on caused her to hallucinate, and she thought there were snakes on the couch, so she stabbed the couch and the walls multiple times to kill the snakes. She said my dad was not home at the time. Really? She spends all his money, and she's stabbed his furniture. I'm glad he's where he is because I know he's safe. But I wish he could just enjoy his last bit of time in his own home. I could go on and on about some of the things she's done.

You could talk to a lawyer JERI but I don't think it will do you any good. This die has been cast. A lot of power comes with that marriage contract and the fact they've been married 12 years enters in too. At the very least you would have to prove he was incapable of making a sound decision at the time he got the mortgage; but with her name being on it too that probably wouldn't be enough. Bottom line is I could pile all my assets up and burn them and my kids couldn't do a thing about it. I don't know that you even have any influence on his care unless you have a medical power of attorney it would take full power of attorney to fight the mortgage and too late to do that now. I'm so sorry. I hope his friends continue to visit him. Hugs.

Let me ask you all a question, because I don't know a lot of older people to ask and I need advice. My dad is 82, and his wife will be 60 in a few days. They've been married 12+ years. He married her a year after my mom died. He was 70, and she was 48 at the time. He was lonely and needed company, and she was in debt with two mortgages on her house, and a bad relationship with a man who eventually died of a heart attack in prison on federal gun charges. People marry for a variety of reasons, love is not necessarily the reason. But my dad was hoodwinked. Anyway, over the years we've tried to tell my dad what type of woman she is, but he was old and lonely and wouldn't listen. Now he has moderate dementia, and she has placed him in a nursing home. His coffee club (every morning for the last 30+ years) is worried about him. They know how his wife is. One of them told me today that my dad's wife recently talked him into getting a $100,000 mortgage on their paid off house so her boys could keep their heating/air business. He's worked hard all his life, and when he sold his newspaper business, he made quite a bit of profit off the sale. Plus, he's got retirement benefits from the local NBC affiliate where he worked for umpteen bazillion years, and also other annuities. If she had to take out a $100,000 mortgage, I'm sure the rest of his money is gone, and she is leaving him to die broke and in debt in a nursing home. I have to pretend like I don't hate her, otherwise she could shut off my access to him. I'm just not sure how to approach this mortgage thing. He has not been mentally able to make financial decisions for quite some time now. I don't care if we see any of his money or anything. That's not even an issue. I do wish he'd spent it on himself, though. He worked hard for it, and now her boys are benefiting while he's lying in a nursing home bed. Is it illegal for her to take out that mortgage? He signed it, too. I just don't know if I should pursue that. Or is it just unethical?

Good morning. After a 3 mile run with friends, I'm sitting at my desk eating blueberries and drinking coffee. I found a sparkrecipe for kahlua-pumpkin pie. It looks yummy!!! I think I'm going to try it for the holidays.

JERI, I hope your dad does better there; my mom did.

Wind took out a major power line here. 14,000 people without. Mine went out at 10 and came back on at 1:20. All is well. But changed my game plan for the day. Will double up errands with grocery shopping tomorrow and get the house ready for DD's arrival today. Too windy to walk. Versailles Rd. is closed until 8 p.m. from circle to MOW; major power line came down across it. Traffic lights all over town are messed up. I just don't need to be out in that! Did get a good (3 mi) "in house" walk in as I revamped my plans in my head and listened to my walking radio to see what was going on with the power . Also called and had a long talk with a shut in friend. But not a walk and talk, had to use a corded phone.

Glad it's a sunny day; that helped a lot! Even had the house open for awhile, that felt good too. Be well everyone.

Good morning! It's crazy windy today. Yikes! I'm getting excited for Thanksgiving. My sister is coming up for a couple of days. I haven't seen her since Thanksgiving 2006.

My dad is now a permanent resident of our local nursing home. They've staged him at moderate dementia. He's lost 50 lbs in about a 6 week time period. He just refuses to eat. :-/

Glorious morning here but frosty, this morning's walk will be bracing LOL.
The Gas Board are coming today to install new smart meters for both gas and electric which will mean no more meter readings and we'll have a gadget to help us keep an idea on our usage.We had one at our old place and it certainly reminds you to turn off lights, turn the heating down a notch..............

Have a good week all

After shopping and lunch I got Snickers out for a windy walk. It felt good and he also enjoyed it.
I continue to be haunted with computer issues, actually printer issues. Erg.
A nice Sunday here. And, the Seahawks won!!
Have a great evening.

Good Morning All, Wonderful evening last night. Dinner out then "An Evening At The Theatre" with my friend. His church has some very talented members that presented the concert. The first half was Opera and I was amazed at both the singers and the acoustics in the church; the second half was show tunes. Beautiful concert!
CAT-Sugar needs a good grooming too; it's really a job! Plus, she has the kind of coat that it only lasts a day or two and then she's back to the shaggy dog look.
Lots to do today; busy week ahead. Hope to get tables, chairs, table cloths etc. over to my daughter's before the rain hits today. That way I only have to take food on Thursday. All is well here. Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

Grooming all day with the dogs yesterday so they look and smell great. What happens?? It rains. Just as I thought the roads were dry enough to walk them this morning it starts raining again!! Gad zooks.
I may be slipping out quietly later to walk............
Stay safe.

Good Morning All,
Social commitments are really challenging my routines and maintenance this week; but I do realize that is a nice problem to have and I'm up for the challenge. Nice dinners out the past two nights with family and another this evening with a friend. I check the menus online and have been able to order wisely but still eating a little more by the end of the day than usual. Most difficult is that it cuts into my activity time, hard to get in my usual fitness minutes. But, my streaks are still intact! :)
Busy week coming up and a lot of travel. Those of you in the path of artic weather take care!
Years ago our Thanksgivings were spent in Erie,PA with my mother in law. Classic scenario was a nice trip there, then the snow would start Thanksgiving afternoon and we'd be battling snow and bad roads the rest of the weekend. Sure don't miss the winters in the North! But, there were times the snow was fun too and a treat for my kids.
Jeri, I hope your dad continues to improve. Nursing home care can be good but does need to be monitored. My mom was in one for many years, Alzheimer's. She seemed happier and like she felt "safer" there. She'd become very fearful at home.
Will get in my walk and yoga today, winging it from there. My food choices are not as much a challenge for me now as making sure to fit in enough activity.
Stay safe and warm everyone.

Jeri it's good that your dad is getting better, shame he does not have a supportive spouse! At least he has you.
Marilyn I've seen the weather you're having on the news, take care hun...doesn't look a lot of fun and it's going to be bedlam when it melts. I fear flooding.
Lynette well done for keeping on track despite some annoying things happening and being busy.
Cat you could well be right about Jeri's dad, I recall the same situation with Pete's dad. Just did not want to be around Lilian!

Well it's raining (there's a surprise.....although that said the last couple of days have been good) and I wanted to finish in the garden. No matter. Might have a pamper day after my workout emoticon

Glad to see you back, LJ. Stay with us!
Marilyn, stay safe up there and enjoy yourselves.
Jeri, perhaps your father senses the negativity at his home and is happier at the nursing home. I hope he gets to feeling even better soon.
High winds and rain along with hours long power outage today. No walk. I did have to take the dogs to the groomer today and missed the power outage at home (okay with me) and it came back on before I returned home. The dogs are tired from the stress and I am tired from sitting there talking to the groomer.

surprised to read back and see how long since I've posted. Always enjoy reading about the activity of everyone. There's been lots of busy-ness for me, as well as a dead vehicle again, not to mention some computer hiccups.
The snow in Buffalo is unbelievable, except the photos prove it. Pray that flooding will not be next. Mother Nature is sure a wicked one these days, whether we blame it on global warming or whatever.
I'm managing to stay pretty steady with my weight but as I stay at home, I eat more. So I am trying to play some mind games and so far it is working. Have also been getting quite a few steps in, with the prompting of my Fitbit.

Hi Everybody!
We are taking a long weekend in the frozen north in Erie, PA. Not too far from Buffalo, NY which has had record-breaking snow accumulation. Last nite we went to a beautiful quaint inn in the country for dinner, but it started snowing and we had to drive thru a white out to get back to the hotel. Don't plan on doing that again soon.
Have a great weekend!

Good morning. I had no idea it was only 18 this morning. Brrrr. It will warm up nicely, though. My dad got transferred to the nursing home yesterday. He is looking much better. I hope he gets strong enough to go home, but I doubt he will. His wife doesn't want him there. She's a hag.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, Sunny here and our snow is gone but still chilly. Warmed to the 40's yesterday and we did get in a good walk; but had wind to battle. Not much will keep us in; heavy rain and ice. Changing gears from the garden to the house and tore into the kitchen yesterday. My oven is now really clean and the two worse cabinets put in order. The one under my stovetop actually needed a good scrubbing, new liner and paint on the back wall. Good job done. Just have to accept tackling a "part" of the job at a time. No longer can tackle the whole room. Have a good sized box of cookbooks that need new homes now. Good day yesterday! Heading into the holidays; will be eating out the next 3 evenings! Two, birthday dinners with my older grandkids and on Sat. dinner and a concert with a friend. Life is good. Stay warm everyone!

Wonderful day, mostly outdoors and ...today..............not a chance, it's pelting down. Glad I used that window of opportunity. Hope you got your walk in?
Jeri good for you, rest up and recuperate hun, good that you're taking care of you!!
Cat next time you'll find it more rewarding.

Like I said a rotten day weatherwise! Hate being stuck inside, but it's an ideal day to catch up on phone calls!

Good for you JERI! Our bodies need recovery time; glad you're listening! Perhaps more than when we were younger---but there are a lot of younger bodies out there that wouldn't be able to keep up with you! Guaranteed!

Good morning. I don't usually wish to be younger, but today I would like to have a younger body -- one that can handle working full time, taking care of my family, handle the stress of an aging parent, and exercising like a beast. I'm declaring this a rest week. I'm not even going to pretend to set my alarm and then re-set it each morning.

Good Morning All, I love the way we all focus on activity; I believe that's really the key to long term maintainence. So much easier in warmer months! I did get out in the cold yesterday and walk; if I don't Sugar just sleeps all day! We both need to keep moving. Today will be easier; should warm to 40. Have a good day everyone!

Jeri I think as our eyes are so precious and the only set we get it's natural to be super anxious, I dread anything going wrong with mine. Although I've had brain surgery I'd have that again rather than eye surgery- it gives me the shudder to just think about it. I really hope the drops do the trick for you. And I hope your dad is soon better, lucky your daughter could get there and help.
Joy I have the garden in my sights again today, determined to get one section finished- it's been bugging me for days but like you it's been too flippin cold!
MN love your attitude :)
Cat good that you have some projects to keep you busy indoors from the cold.

Okay..........I'm going to brave it after brekkie emoticon

MN, good attitude and way to live.
I heard Andrea Tantera say recently that 'nothing tastes as good as thin feels'. I keep listening to that over and over in my head.
Jeri, sorry about your father. Hope he gets better soon. Your daughter sounds like a good person.
Got in a good walk after lunch and worked on my sewing projects today. This cold weather is not for me.

Jeri, I love that poem about the seasons! And it is colder than blue blazes here! Much too cold for November! Have a meeting tonight, so probably won't get any cardio in - just trying to get up from my desk as often as possible to move around a bit. That might be the extent of my exercise for the day, although I did get up and do some arm/shoulder s/t before work.

Good Morning All? Darn! It's (&*)_U&* COLD out there! Chilly doesn't cover it! I'm so thankful it's sunny and calm; will bundle up and get out this afternoon. Got a good walk in yesterday but just couldn't make myself go out again to yoga last night.

JERI I understand your eye doctor anxiety; last time I went was the first time I went with a problem rather than just a vision exam; even with the numbing of my eyeball it felt like he was removing it from the socket! Will be harder if I have to do that again. I know quite a few people that have had the laser surgery with good results, just take one step at a time. I'm sorry about your dad but so glad it wasn't worse. Your daughter sounds like she would do well whatever she chose to do; quality gal!

No commitments today but plenty to do. Sugar doesn't want to go out; can't blame her! She doesn't have a litter box, will have to go out soon. Stay warm everyone.

Good morning!!! It's a chilly, chilly day outside. My mother used to always say:
"Spring has sprung, Fall has fell. Winter's here, and it's colder than blue blazes."

Yesterday my eye appt was crazy. I need laser surgery on my left eye to help my glaucoma, but I get a bad case of anxiety at the eye doctor. Even with a pre-appt valium yesterday, the doctor could not complete the exam. So they are going to try to bring my eye pressure down with some drops, and I'll go back on Jan 6th. If they can't get it down, they will have to put me completely to sleep in order to perform the surgery. I asked her if it will be like the scene from Final Destination where they prop my eye open and a machine falls down, and my eyeball will go rolling across the room, so I'll have to chase it down. Bwahahaha.

After I got back to work from my eye appt, my daughter called me and told me my dad had fallen down in his house. His wife had come home from her radiation treatment and found him on the floor. She couldn't get him up. My daughter rushed over there and took care of him until the ambulance arrived. She even laid on the floor with him. At one point my daughter had wanted to be a nurse. She is a certified nurse aid, with some college courses toward her nursing degree. Instead, she now is almost finished with her Master's Degree in Elementary Education. She needs to go back to nursing. She is a loving, caring person, who is extremely good at making patients feel better while administering care. I really appreciate her being there for him. He is fine. He doesn't eat or drink much, so he was very dehydrated. His white blood count is very elevated, but they couldn't get a urine sample even with a catheter due to his dehydration. They admitted him to the hospital. I'm glad it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Yesterday was a very trying day!! But today is a new day.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Feeling a little bit under the weather today so decided to use a sick day and relax. I've decided that to keep my motivated with exercise, I need to think about how much I would WANT to exercise if for some reason I was limited physically and wasn't able to. As for food, I will stay motivated to eat healthy so that in the event I am faced with a health setback, I'll be strong and healthy enough to fight it! In other words, focus on health a gain and not weight. I guess we are 50+ (and then some for some of us) so it's important to think about those things. Here's to new motivation to those of us who need it!

Hi all.
Yesterday was too busy and tiring for me to do more than grin. Shopping day always wears me out. Don't know why other than I do not like the crowds and all the attention to detail in looking at my food purchases.
Anyway, I'm up and at 'em today. Getting ready to walk the dogs in our 40 degree, cool breeze weather before heading out to bowling.
Joy, I am also struggling with busy vs activity this fall. This is new to me and one that is not welcome as the scale has inched up to where I need to make a concentrated effort to get it back down. I am even thinking of rejoining the gym so that I will be forced to deal with it.
Perhaps I need to join an activity team for awhile as I dropped all those when I hit maintenance a few years ago and was going to the gym. Ugh.
Have a wonderful day everyone.

Good Morning All, Jeri is right; it is a pretty morning. Everything snow covered but it's already melting off my drive and street. But, temps are dropping so if we get more could turn to ice. We'll see. No where I HAVE to be. Coloring a friends hair later this morning but will walk up to her house.
Weighed this morning .8# over my top goal range. Challenge of being more busy than active. DGD's album is done, I have more sewing to do on current projects. I really have to work at being "active" with this cold weather. I still get in about a 2 mile walk, hoop 20 minutes and do my morning abs/yoga routine; but it's not quite enough. I'll be fine, miss working in the yard. Go to yoga class 2x a week but I won't even start anything new at the gym until after the holidays.
Enjoy your week everyone.

Good morning. It's a beautiful snowy morning here. We were supposed to have 2-6", and then 1-2", and so far it's just a dusting. The trees look very pretty decorated with snow. I'm on my way to the glaucoma specialist. I went to the eye doctor last Wednesday, and she went all freaky and acted like my eyes were going to explode if I don't see the head glaucoma specialist quickly to have surgery on my left eye. I've been avoiding the eye doctor too long because I hate it. I seriously hate having my eyeballs poked and prodded. It sends me into panic, and it makes me want to vomit. So this morning I'm going to see the head eye doctor. She gave me a valium to take beforehand, so my husband is driving me.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

I had an interesting walk yesterday in drizzle. I really miss the sun emoticon
But spoke to Vicki again yesterday and it now looks like they're over to us Christmas Day like last year and us over to them on the 26th. There place is still in a muddle from decorating and so it makes sense to spread out over here.

Didn't do much today. No snow today, but the wind came up and blew it around, so the highways were bad again today. Think it's going to be that way all winter! Will need to dig deep for motivation - guess it's time to bond with the treadmill again!

Good morning everyone. I hope you're keeping warm in your neck of the woods. It's been cooler here in Central FL...sweaters in the morning but much warmer mid-day. I've been able to get my 10,000 steps in almost everyday this week.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Morning all
Well we got some boards down in the loft- that took all afternoon LOL.
Pete reckoned on a couple of hours- I said double that and and add 10% LOL...wasn't far out.

Still raining here today, managed a walk yesterday between showers but don't think I'll have as much luck today and I was hoping to finish up in the garden. Weather looks good for Tuesday apparently so looking forward to some sun.

Have a great Sunday all, keep active, sleep better.

27 here this morning and it never went above 42. Got in a long walk, though.

Joy glad you enjoyed the music and got your album done. I've not looked at our albums since we moved! They're somewhere in the spare bedroom right now under a pile of other boxes.
MN Just think why you started and how far you've come!
Cat not surprised you're tired, that was one busy day!!

Weather is just awful here and I'm twiddling my thumbs. I'll find something to do after brekkie, might try and get Pete interested in doing some work in the loft- we've yet to decide on the flooring up there!

Got in a bit of a walk after lunch.
I spent three hours cleaning, cooking, peeling, making vinegar solution, and canning 7 1/2 qts beets.
A friend wanted some and was given two bags of them. I cleaned out my pantry of them and gave those to her so I could do these at my leisure. Wish I hadn't as these are golden beets and I don't like them as much. Oh well.
I am tired now.

Good Morning All,
Beautiful sunny morning here; but cold (19). Will walk this afternoon when it's a little warmer.
Jazz was great last night! Glad we got out--really have to push myself to go out these cold dark nights.
Slept really well for the first time since the time change. Part of that is Xena is much better and not up on the bed at night. She's playing in a sunny patch right now; has just discovered her shadow.
Album is done and I am pleased. I am going to make a vinyl cover to protect it; that's today's project.
Patti, So glad the car is fixed. We've become so dependent on them and it's such a stress-er when they are not dependable.
Cat, I really admire the time you take to do the prep to have healthy fresh food readily available. It's a sure way to avoid slipping into convenience foods on a busy day.


All is well here. Stay warm everyone!

Patti glad to hear you're getting confidence in your car. They are invaluable.
Joy how was the concert?
Lynette Happy Birthday wishes for your BF
MN I confess once evening comes these cold nights I don't want to venture out either.
Cat great idea for lemons.

Very blustery here today, too much so for a walk on the front, I think a storm is brewing.
Have to venture out for food shop but otherwise I'm keeping in the warm. Hitting the weights after brekkie!

Greetings all.
Busy morning in the kitchen cleaning and dealing with produce purchases.
I also shredded in my food processor eight large lemons after cutting and seeding them. What a pain, but there is so much nutrition in the skins and pulp that I have decided it's worth the pain. I put this in ice cube trays and freeze them then transfer to a baggie to take from weekly then thaw and use in my nightly salads.
Tomorrow is beet day. A friend wanted me to pickle her some beets that were given to her.
A beautiful and cool day here but one that is great for walking.

Still lots of ice and snow and cold/wind. More like December than November! Will keep moving, but will be moving much more slowly! Got up and did a SP video this morning before work. Probably will go to pickleball tonight, but it's hard getting bundled up and going out after supper in the winter, so might do a Leslie Sansone video instead. What I'd really like to do is just snuggle with a book, but need to get that cardio in, or will pay for it later!

I am back at work today. My car is now fixed. At least I hope that it is. It was running good yesterday and this morning I made it to the bus stop.

Morning Guys,
Joy I've got several cards to go abroad so it made sense to get those done and the rest will follow. As it was I did my "winter cleaning" all day yesterday..............great workout emoticon I'm saving the cards for when there's nothing on TV in the evening or if it's raining. If we had a few flakes of snow in London, everything came to a grinding halt- so glad I'm out of there!. Your garden must be ready for winter by now??
We had a leaflet from our council saying that we could/should clear paths for neighbours if needed and we would not be lending ourselves to litigation should someone slip- such is the blame culture it was thought that if you were not thorough enough you could be held to blame is someone slipped over!
Patti did your car pass muster?
Lynette I tried searching MIKE MIKE MIKE on You Tube and came up with a Hump Day advert........loved it, not seen it here emoticon
Marilyn learning new skills WTG- I am useless with technical stuff!
Cat sorry about the bowling!

A walk today and seeing Vicki this afternoon
